Restaurant
“Another Food Truck turned successful Restaurant - Ki is one of my absolutely favorites in Shreveport...and I'm not the only one. On a busier day you will be lucky to find a place to sit - good thing tacos are a hand held food! Try the bar side when they have live music for a really eclectic experiences for all the senses!”

Aquarium
“One of my son's favorites - it's affordable and fun! Look this is not the National Aquarium in Baltimore nor is it the 10 Million Gallon masterpiece of the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta - but for about $40 a family of 4 can easily soak up a couple of hours of entertainment, education and memories. I highly recommend adding Sci-Port (also in my guide book) to your day if you are planning to do the aquarium with children as it is just down the street, and also very affordable science exploration in a cool setting!”

“Marilynn's Place is a hip spot that locals love to frequent for Sunday brunch. The chef whips up a new menu each week full of non-traditional southern flavor combinations that are guaranteed to please. Lesser known, they also serve dinner each night as well.”

Italian Restaurant

“This is by far my favorite restaurant in the city. I actually proposed to my wife in this restaurant. It is locally owned it and has been serving the Shreveport Bossier area for many years. The food here is exceptional with the real Italian taste. The restaurant it’s self Is beautifully decorated. This is great for a romantic evening out or if you just wanna have a good old fashion meal with your family and friends.”

Cajun / Creole Restaurant

“A little more relaxed than Copeland's but similar menu. Lot's of true south Louisiana choices. You're sure to find something you like and, of course, cheesecake. Try the Dulce de leche (on original cheesecake). It's covered in a praline cream and garnished with a praline.”

“Another great Iconic Shreveport family owned restaurant. Italian, and boy, it is good. The shrimp toast is a meal alone. Their brownies, if they are not sold out, fantastic. My favorite, the muffaletta. But anything you get will not disappoint. About 3 minutes away.”

“I'm not big on chain restaurants, but this one is the best chain I've ever experienced. And if you eat in the bar, their happy hour appetizers are 1/2 priced. They give you delicious bread and olive oil/spices for bread dipping along with appetizers is a huge meal in itself.”
